Thanks Most likely a task is running in the background, not allowing it to shutdown. Prior to shutdown, have task manager running to see if you can spot a resource tab item taking cpu cycles, and that is probably the culprit. Also check event viewer log for errors on previous days' shutdown. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
